However, It could be traced to the study techniques employed. Good study tips can make your result rise from a second class lower to a second class upper or First class in some cases. Some certain factors can also add to a students poor performance, such as not completing the scheme, addiction to technology, procrastination and so on.

1. REHEARSE VIA WRITING
Practice they say always makes perfect. Some students actually learn better when they rehearse through writing. Take a look at the information that you need to remember, write them down and copy it over and over in different sheets of paper. This study tip has been proved worthy by so many students. You can try it out..
2. USE Of ABBREVIATION
The use of abbreviation is very important to remember certain definition or meaning of a particular subject. In addition, abbreviation helps in memorizing formulas or codes.
3. BREAK THINGS DOWN
This is an elder brother to the method discussed above. Don’t try to read everything in one sitting, the human brain is not a computer. Breaking it down involves breaking information into small chunks and reviewing them consistently over a long period of time.
So don’t try to memorize the entire periodic table in one sitting—instead learn a few rows every day and review each lesson before starting anything new. Use this study tip to boost your GPA this semester.
4. MOVE AROUND
I have discovered that studying the same stuff in a different place every day makes us less likely to forget that information. If the text seem difficult to comprehend, moving around or changing location won’t be a bad idea. This is a secret from a very good scholar.
5. GROUP READING
Reading in group can help you comprehend more than when studying alone. Most times our colleagues tend to make us understand better than our lecturers. In that process there would be competition as well as team work. The more you teach a friend a particular topic, the more you understand…this works.
This is among the study tips you should consider. Good students do this a lot of time. They jot down lecture series and read them at their leisure time. It helps to comprehend fast without forgetting. “You have to Jott things down in order to take things away…..” Josh2funny.
7. CONSTANT PRACTICE
Constant practicing of a particular subject matter makes it become a part of you. So keep trying even if you fail at the fist trail, don’t quit, be persistent. This method can be of a great help.
8. PUT YOURSELF TO TEST.
Quizzing yourselves may be one of the best ways to prepare for the real deal and don’t worry about breaking a sweat while trying to remember the name of the 7th Nigerian president. The harder it is to remember a piece of information in practice mode, the more likely we are to remember it in the future. This is one of the best study tips.
To plan ahead is to make good use of your time, and time is very essential for good scholars. Plan weakly study time table and try to follow it. Do not procrastinate because time waits for no man.
10. ASKING QUESTIONS
Ask questions, ask again, continue to ask until you get answers. Don’t skip that topic. Don’t die in ignorance.
